Summer Intern

Sri Vidya Bulusu served as our summer Market Research Intern to help us better understand and expand our outreach efforts to include more diverse and younger audiences on the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). She was integral in analyzing and reporting findings on current visitor demographics of the Trail and the National Parks Units along the Trail. She collected research data and conducted interviews with key constituents to better understand how youth and diverse groups are currently interacting with the outdoors and what barriers exist.  

Vidya is originally from Hyderabad, India, and earned a M.A. in Engineering Management at Duke University. She was selected through the Stanback Internship Program, a program that provides Duke students with significant work experience in energy, conservation, advocacy, policy, research, and applied resource management.
